Bishop Clark to Bp Grant: Diocese division; Downham Market; PP changeover

Suggest Canons Burditt and Frost and Frs Philpot and Wace for Commission on the division of the [Northampton] Diocese.
Downham Market is an issue on which we must stand - "whatever the personal holiness of Ossie (and God alone is the Judge here), he is corrupting a holy thing - and this is the hidden evil." Unwavering leadership is required. Confront Ossie with the obedience he owes, and, that the Pope has formally specified the circumstances in which the rite may be celebrated.
Tony Sketch should be given Downham market as his charge and say a publicised Mass there.
PPs (Aldeburgh, Wymondham, Felixstowe and Ipswich) make change-over on October 7th.

Fr Wilson to Bishop Clark: Southwold Tower; Mildenhall presence; Lynford future

3 topics in this letter:

  1. Southwold - Suggest that Fr Sloan get on with the repairs to the tower

  2. Mildenhall - Tony Philpot's suggestion that a more permanent presence in Mildenhall i agreed. Place in housing estate instead of edge of town; a 50% grant fro New Missions Fund, about £20,000 - where to get the rest? Also, staffing - retired military chaplain? Consider a parish of Mildenhall and Brandon?

  3. Lynford - what to do with it when [Fr] Flannery goes? Merge into parish for Mildenhall/./Brandon?

RCDEA Archives to Fr McCormick: Photographs received; dimensions

Mrs Dora Cowton writes. Have received the photographs and will add them to the Travelling Mission notes already held. Provides dimensions for the altar with a description. Fr Fears cannot explain how the altar came to be in Brandon. The previous priest Fr Ivan Rudkin has died; Fr Antony Philpot was PP at Bury St Edmunds and served Brandon, which was also served from Newmarket where Fr Peter Leeming was one of the priests - should she write to them?
